Ninja Sweater & Ninja Balaclava

Updated: Feb 5

This Ninja sweater and Ninja balaclava are very simple and easy to knit. You will find a lot of purling, which I like. I recommend purling in the Portuguese style. However, please feel free to knit in the way you are comfortable making garter stitches.

It is also easy to adjust the size so you can knit in the size that fits you best. For wider body, add some stitches when casting on. For longer body length, add some rows as you like.

This pattern includes instructions using Daruma's GEEK, but you don't have to use the specified yarn. You can use the leftover yarn at home to make something interesting. Please refer to page 7 for instructions without color specifications.

The Ninja Sweater is a warm sweater for the hips. The Ninja Balaclava is also a very warm hat for the neck and back of the head.
